Visited here for lunch after our friend recommended it. Had a lovely meal and our only problem was deciding which cake to have as there was so much choice!

Always amazing. Every time I am in Aviemore this is always the first option for somewhere to eat. The iced coffee shakes, with its three shots of espresso and two scoops of vanilla ice cream, are to die for!👌

We use some of Scotland's best local produce to create healthy, wholesome & interesting food with a Kiwi twist. We opened our doors in 2004 and have been gaining awards and accolades for our antipodean style coffees, delicious breakfasts, superb lunches & fresh home baking ever since. Our service is friendly & casual with a professional team from all over the world. The café offers excellent views of the Cairngorm Mountains - enjoy our balcony area during summer and the cosy log burner to sit by during the winter months. All the pictures are of our food - why not come in and sample our hospitality when you are in the area next?
